Activation of Fawkner Neighbourhood Centre

Expressions of Interest are called from community members interested in becoming part of a Reference Committee for the activation of the Fawkner Neighbourhood Centre.

This is a great opportunity to be part of the creation of something exciting. An opportunity to help create a new Neighbourhood House in Fawkner by bringing your vision and passion to the table.

The purpose of the Reference Committee is to guide and inform the auspice agency, North West Neighbourhood House Network, (NWNHN) to ensure the establishment of a new organisation based on best practice in structure, governance and operations.

We are committed to build a sustainable and viable Neighbourhood Centre in Fawkner with the aim of handing a strong and vibrant organisation with a strong governance structure back to the community by 2021.

The Reference Committee will meet monthly at 79 Jukes Road Fawkner until June 30th 2020. At that time there will be a review going forward.

To express your interest please tell us:
1. What skills and attributes you would bring to the Reference Committee (100 words)
2. About your vision and passion for the Fawkner community (100 words)

Expressions of Interest will close on Thursday, September 5th at 5pm.

Please forward your response to Judy Lazarus
or deliver to the Community House
79 Jukes Road

Eid Mubarak!

With Ramadan finishing last week, the Fawkner Community House overflowed with locals joining together to celebrate Eid. There was food galore, catered by Fawkner Kebab Shop and many other homemade treats, as well as a scarf stall for anyone wanting to update their wardrobe for a bargain! Fawkner Community House Community Services Volunteer Khaedeejah Anderson said “the Open House Eid Celebration was a wonderful success. It brought many cultures and groups together in a unified celebration of faith.”

We’d like to thank all those who came out on the 6th of July to help celebrate Eid with some lunch and launch the new Cubby House for the children. We also want to give a big thanks to Kids Under Cover, Portland House Foundation and Inner North Community Foundation for their generosity and fantastic effort in giving the Cubby House a new home here in Fawkner.
